PURPOSE Sleep deprivation (SD) increases the occurrence of interictal epileptiform discharges (IED) compared to basal EEG in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE). In adults, EEG after SD is usually performed in the morning after SD. We aimed to evaluate whether morning sleep after SD bears additional IED-inducing effects compared with nocturnal physiological sleep,(More)
In patients with a first seizure, the identification of early sensitive and specific biomarkers for formulating a diagnosis of epilepsy is fundamental. Sleep deprivation (SD) has long been used as a means of enhancing EEG sensitivity in the diagnostic process. However, huge methodological differences among the studies addressing this topic have led to(More)
